Big Year ideas from a wacky, fine book

Rob Walker’s wonderful “The Art of Noticing: Rediscover What Really Matters to You” really fires up hope for creativity. His 131 different ideas to stimulate attention, freshness, and deepness, really call to me. Of the 131, I’m drawn to 5. Any one of them would make for a fun Big Year:

  • Spot something new every day
  • Don’t photograph, draw
  • Follow the quiet
  • Take a photo walk, with no camera
  • Interview a friend, loved one, stranger – or even an ideological nemesis
